The UK has about 25.000.000 homes, 80% are of poor design, lack quality insulation, inferior windows and doors, and cost way over the odds

Log Cabins LV can offer quality, design and price, all of which beat the competition easily!

A++ Energy Efficient Homes are not expensive, but no doubt, every builder and his dog will now be hammering away, offering this kind of build type, and prices at the very start will be extortionate. Honesty is in price!!!

Firstly, the panels should come delivered 99% fully made to site, there should be no frame building on site. The stud work in the panel should not be open to the elements Ever!!!!

A passive house, an (A++ Energy Efficient home) should at all times be manufactured in a controlled environment, we have a heated undercover work shop facility where we are able to fully build a 3 storey house, our in house CNC Window and door line offers quality CE approved Windows and Doors every time.

All our timber is C24 graded, KD FSC.

Timber Frame Super Insulated Passive Housing

Our New Passive Range of Timber Frame cassettes are not solely for the Park Home Market.

Our New and Amazing Super Insulated Timber Panel System is with out doubt the future for all New Dwellings, as we believe setting standards of a quality build at incredibly low prices is the way forward for also the housing market.

Offering the chance for first time buyers to purchase a quality build at a price they can afford!

For too long brick and block with gas central heating, has dominated the landscape, blighting our country with poorly insulated housing, which costs 2 times its actual value!

UK Building Companies have built too many homes that are like chicken coops, treating first time buyers with contempt, and charging them over £200.000 for the indignation.

Our aim, is to offer a modern type structure which is Passive, with low heating costs, as little as £80 a year, which boasts triple glazing as standard, under floor heating, Air Source Heat Pumps, Air Recuperation systems, and so much more for less than a Mobile Static Home.

We believe that this kind of build will dominate the market in years to come, and we would like to shape this market with sensible pricing, with our standard of quality leading the way!

Why we are different to any other company is the standard of our build quality.

Our timber is not subjected to any salt, unlike 99% of all timber brought from over seas.

Our Grade of Timber is uncommonly high! We only use graded KD C24 FSC 45mm x 195mm treated (if required), which in the UK is priced high to push building companies to purchase other lower grades because of the difficulties in obtaining higher grades at sensible pricing. Most timber frame studwork is done with C16, and sometimes sadly, the timber is not even graded.

We are able to offer a full turnkey solution, planning, drawings, base, groundwork, the super insulated timber frame building and every other aspect of the build.

Next we believe in offering not just the best CE approved laminated timber triple glazed windows and doors money can buy, we offer these where other companies would offer cheap UPVC plastic windows- doors.

Also we offer quality security locking mechanisms on all our Windows and Doors, keeping your property secure from unwanted intruders, and mother nature!

The list goes on and on, why our super insulated timber frame passive homes are without doubt the best in the business, if you are interested in purchasing a timber frame, passive building, that really is sensibly priced, please give us a call.

Park Homes and Timber Frame Holiday Lodges

 

Quality Holiday Lodges

Park Homes by Logcabins.lv

Over many, many Years Domestic type Park Homes, Caravans, Mobile Units Holiday Lodges have changed very little; sadly, they are still manufactured to a specification that is quite honestly laughable, and can deprecate as much as £7.500 a year!

When looking to purchase a Park Home, or a Holiday Home, maybe a Mobile Home or a holiday Lodge to put on your farm, or free hold, you need to think twice before purchasing anything that is built- manufactured to the BS3632 – 2005.

What is almost criminal is the way that these units are sold, the word Home is used too frequently in sales material of companies who sell these inadequate piles of garbage. They are not a home from home, your house increases in value, your Park Home built under the BS 3632 does not.

Structural Timbers is another word used a lot in their sales material. Yet, any mention of what graded material is used in the manufacturing is missing from their literature!

In addition, the sentence, We will Build your Dreams, should be replaced with, we will fleece you for everything you have and more!

 Your Park Home should be an investment, it should be your Home, and there is no law that states your Park Home cannot be manufactured to the UK building regulations. The only reason why they don’t is profit!

So why do companies that manufacture park homes use chipboard, plywood, and PVCu windows and door? Why is the unit build quality so bad!

Its quite simple really, they want repeat business, so they manufacture absolute garbage that lasts 10 years and then needs replacing.

I know many companies will refute this, but it’s so simple to find the truth on value of second hand Park Homes, its called ebay!

We searched and noticed that at least 99.9% of park homes loose the value of 80% of their worth in the first 7-9 years!

A quality long lasting park home – lodge needs the ingredients of quality timber, quality insulation, built by a skilled workforce that manufactures not just park homes but houses, hotels, schools and all manner of other type timber constructions.

And what materials you use in the process of the build is so incredibly important.

The UK has a shortage of timber, most forests have long gone, and the UK imports nearly 87% of all its timber from abroad! This means that after the timber has been delivered to the Park Home manufactures based in the UK. It’s costly and normally the grade is not just below par, its awful, and expensive, compared to what LogCabins.LV use.

C24 graded FSC 45m x 195m timber frame work (stud work) in the UK is near on impossible to find, also graded 45m x 145m graded timber also is very hard to find, as most companies use in the Park Home industry 73mm x 36mm frame work, stud work! Which is half of what should be used to give the Park Home strength and longevity.

Also there are many types of insulation, because every Park Home-Mobile Home- Holiday Lodge from logcabins.lv is in reality a bespoke, we look at your budget and our full time architects will give you the best specification to meet your budget.

Below is a normal specification for our Park Homes, Holiday Lodges. This specification is way past anything on offer in the UK. All timber is graded, C24.

Passive Park Homes Poole Dorset!

Quality Timber Frame Passive Park Homes-Holiday Home-

Quality Passive Park Homes are as rare as the dodo!

Moreover, finding a Park Home that is built to as high standards as ours is as rare as the labor party’s seats in Scotland!

What we are offering to the public is not just a thin timber frame building with some larch cladding,

Logcabins.lv is offering the behemoth, a tearing down of old perceptions on the what a mobile home is at present, and really bringing to market a Park Home that is so high , in insulation in quality, and tech,  that all companies-manufacturers should and must follow our standards if they want to carry on having sales of any kind!

We are without doubt the leading light in this industry for innovation, quality and price!

Gone are the days when a caravan like structure is adequate, as a population we expect better and the best to be the best, but sadly, we have turned into a throw away nation.

8 out of 10 retired couples who purchase a Park Home expect to loose their investment. We have between 100 to 250 emails a week from couples, asking us for advice on what kind of structure (build type) to purchase, and our advice to them is to purchase nothing at all that is manufactured to the BS 3632!

As a Brit, I must say I am horrified how little we take care of our retired Population, and I am amazed how the government has even allowed this build type to go into law, and then into production, its wasteful of materials, it has no resalable value and it costs us all millions in taxes!

If a retired couple were to purchase a typical Park Home, which is manufactured / built to the BS 3632, it is very likely they will lose their entire investment after some 20 years.

Park Homes built under the BS 3632 devalue rapidly due to the incredibly pathetic build standard, inadequate insulation, and awful windows and doors.

Our thoughts why the Park Homes of today are costing the taxpayer money!

If a retired couple invest 50% of the equity from their property/pension savings into purchasing a park home, and the other was used for living expenses, holidays, grand children etc.

When the time comes for full time care, as sadly that is where we all end up one day, their return on their 20 year old Park Home would be insufficient to pay for full time care, or a holiday in Camber Sands!

If you are looking for not just the best Park Home ever manufactured and on display for viewing, then please give us a call, or send us an email. Our Buildings increase in value, to find out more please give us a call!
